We are open for essential care only

In line with government guidelines, we are only offering medically essential appointments, so please contact the practice team before travelling. Our opening hours may also vary, so please monitor our webpage to keep up to date with the latest information.

We are taking steps to help keep you and our colleagues safe:

  • If you do need to visit, we ask that only one person per pet comes along, to help reduce the number of people in the waiting area at any one time.
  • Social distancing is crucial at this time. When arriving, you may be required to call ahead and wait to be invited in by a member of our team. You will be informed if this is necessary when you call us to make your appointment.
  • Once inside the practice, we ask that you please respect a two metre distance from our colleagues and other clients.
  • We are only accepting card payments to help minimise contact between you and our colleagues.
  • If you can’t visit the practice and are concerned about your pet’s health, please contact us to discuss available options.

We will continue to share regular updates here and on our Facebook page. We thank you for your patience at this time.

Veterinary Surgeon


Read Sei Ming Lee bio

I qualified as a veterinary surgeon in July 2015 with a BVMS from University of Glasgow. Originally from the sunny Malaysia, I’ve lived in Glasgow for 5 years and recently moved down to Lancaster to join the new veterinary family. I am currently enjoying all aspects of veterinary medicine and the different challenges it brings each day. Outside work I enjoy reading, baking, playing piano and travelling.

My name is Efi and I come from the sunny land of Greece. From the age of 10 I knew that my purpose in life was to become a veterinary surgeon. As a student I dedicated my summer holidays in internships and I qualified from Aristotle University of Thessaloniki in Greece in 2018.

I became a Scientific Associate of the Department of Microbiology and infectious diseases at the same University. From November 2018 I worked as a veterinary surgeon at a veterinary clinic in Thessaloniki.

My search for new experiences and a deeper understanding of my science led me to the picturesque Lancashire. I love adventure and in my free time I enjoy hiking, mountain climbing and travelling.

Senior Vet


Read Dr Tessa Jongejans bio

Hello, my name is Tessa Jongejans and I am the head veterinarian at Vet4Pets
Lancaster. I graduated in the Netherlands at the University of Utrecht in June 2009
after which I started my veterinary career in New Zealand. As a mixed animal vet I
practiced in NZ for 3 years in different practices both on the South as well as the
North Island. I met my partner Jamie there and together we moved to Australia (as
that is what the Kiwi’s do if you believe the Aussies), where I started focusing on
small animals only.
After a short period I became Veterinary Director in Newcastle and after 3 years I
moved to Sydney to be the director at another clinic. In February 2019 we opened
another practice in a petshop, very similar to our Vets4Pets clinic here. Jamie and I
welcomed our son Tias in 2016, who was very excited to fly in the big airplane to
My interests are all things surgery, with my main area of expertise being soft tissue
surgery, as well as practice management and patient care. And in my free time I
enjoy spending time outdoors, playing sports or going to the movies, and we do love
a good quiz night!
I am very excited to be joining the Lancaster V4P team and look forward to meeting
you and your furry friends!

My name is Lucy. I've been lucky enough to be a part of the Vets4Pets team for a little while now and it's the greatest team I've been a part of.

I'm originally from London, but I've lived in Lancaster now for 11 years. I live with my husband and our two animals; a lovely moggie called Rioja, and our scruffy dog Rufus. I have loved every minute of living in Lancaster and it has been made all the better since starting a job I absolutely love. Plus the added bonus of getting to meet all the lovely animals that come into the practice.
